Caribbean Cruises


The Caribbean is a treasure for cruise enthusiasts: its lovely and surprisingly diverse islands, clear turquoise waters and consistently balmy weather make it a great cruise destination any time of year.

When to Go:

Any Time of Year

Busiest Times of Year:

  • Summer Break
  • Christmas/New Year
  • February through mid-April (Spring Break)

What to Expect About the Weather:

  • Remarkably consistent and beautiful weather
  • On beaches, temperatures tend to stay in the 70s and 80s Fahrenheit all year long
  • Temperatures rarely go as high as 100 degrees
  • Only at the highest elevations of the region’s more mountainous islands do temperatures ever dip to the 60s or below
  • Mountainous islands, such as Jamaica and St. Lucia, also tend to get more rainfall than islands with lower elevations. Still, rain is often not island-wide.
  • Islands in the far southern Caribbean, such as Aruba, get so little rain that they have interesting desert-like features

What to Know About Hurricane Season:

  • Runs June 1 through November 1
  • The odds of a hurricane interrupting your vacation are still very low
  • Many experienced cruisers wouldn’t hesitate to book a cruise at that time
  • Cruise lines are adept at repositioning ships when necessary to avoid storms (providing a huge advantage over a resort vacation)
  • If you have concerns, talk with Cruise Holidays about how travel insurance can help protect your vacation investment
